1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2-Liter Supersport Cabriolet

Porsche revived the Carrera name — previously used for the competition-orientated versions of the preceding 356 — for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973. It applied the evocative title to all 911 models, coincidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-liter engine, from 1984. Not merely enlarged, the new engine was also extensively revised and produced 231 horsepower, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera’s top speed was now 152 mph, with 100 mph reachable in a Read More

2005 Porsche Carrera GT

When Porsche decided to attach the GT appellation to Carrera in 2004, it marked a return to its competition roots, the new flagship supercar’s looks recalling those of the original Type 550 of 50-plus years ago. Known as “Project Code 80,” the program to develop a front-ranking supercar had begun following Porsche’s Le Mans win with the 911 GT1 in 1998. Although a couple of dozen GT1s were adapted for road use, something more practical would be required for Read More

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring

This LHD example is the 38th 2.7 RS produced, and therefore, one of the first 500s built to “RSH” specification to meet FIA homologation requirements. After having been driven to Stuttgart for weighing, it was driven back to the factory for completion as a “Touring” (Porsche Code 472) version. It was highly equipped from new, with such factory options as front and rear bumpers with impact absorbers, leather-trimmed Recaro sport seats and a rear luggage compartment in place Read More

1968 Porsche 911S Targa “Big Tank”

This 1968 911S is a correct, matching-numbers car that has been given a complete restoration. This car was imported to the United States by Beverly Hills Porsche for a client in 1980.

In 2002, the same client commissioned Beverly Hills Porsche to restore the car, and it has been driven sparingly since.

The odometer currently reads just 23,700 miles, indicating the careful miles covered since importation. It is immaculately clean and painted in the period-correct red over black with Read More

One Terrific Baby Porsche

When the Porsche Boxster show car debuted at Detroit in 1993, it created a lot of excitement.

The new, smallish, two-place convertible sent writers off to research the joys and frustrations of owning 356 Speedsters and roadsters. When the 1997 Type 986 Boxster finally arrived in showrooms three years later, pent-up customer demand assured their popularity. Road testers were predominantly enthusiastic, while Porsche enthusiasts were of divided opinions — as they always are whenever anything Read More

The Drendel Collection

At the March 9 Gooding & Company Auction on Amelia Island, FL, the Drendel Family Collection sold 16 Porsches — 12 of them historically significant cars.
